I have been going here since around 1986. Great vibes and service. I met a cute girl here and married her. The fireplace in the winter is very cozy!
The atmosphere of Murphy's was amazing. It was everything an Irish Pub should be. It was crowded and noisy (but we could still converse with each other) and the service was good
Guiness, a 12 year old Jameson's, and live music ... I was set for the night.
Plenty of booze to choose from, the bartenders are always friendly and get your order both correct and back to you on time. I've been here a few dozen times
To the point: Murphy's is the spot for good food, good friends, and great atmosphere.
We stop in here at least once per trip. We got here around 6:30 on Friday night & the place was packed and very loud. We had to park across the street, luckily public parking started @7. They take reservations and there were several large parties here during this visit. We got the tuna bites appetizer, which was very good. They are blackened pieces of tuna steak and come with a lemon wedge and tarter sauce. I ordered Irish stew, which was good, although a wee bit salty and light on the meat. The carrots, potatoes and celery were in large slices. The soda bread was great! Hubby ordered meat and potato pie. Very filling and full of flavor. Comes covered in a dark brown gravy adding even more flavor. We'll definitely keep comin here. Highly recommended. Great atmosphere.
This is a great bar. Three visits and I feel like a regular. You got to catch Pat Carroll playing Irish drinking songs and leading us in what I can best describe as Irish Karaoke. It's a blast!!!!
A solid beer and whiskey selection, decent pub grub and entrees at reasonable prices, fun entertainment and, most important a friendly and attentive wait staff.
Love Pat and his sing alongs: Always a fun time. A great place to meet up with friends.
